For anyone building a new home, the myriad of options available can be stifling to ensure you move through the tollgate. However, that’s where Ferntree Homes can help! Each new home project comes with positives and negatives, so while a duplex doesn’t suit everybody, the price of land in Sydney has ensured that the Duplex option has several advantages for new prospective homeowners.

Building a Duplex In Campbelltown and South Western Sydney will assist you in maximising the investment of whether it’s your existing block of land or looking to discover the financial areas like dual-income, it’s a duplex that can support these. A duplex offers solutions to various places and flexibility that makes a duplex a possible solution in some instances.

Whether you become an owner-occupier or rent out both sides of the duplex, you’ll get a higher square-metre rate out of your investment, resulting in a higher yield and the maximum potential use of your large block of land.

What A Duplex Does Is Make A Big Block Of Land More Efficient

When you capitalise on your big block, you can do it via a vast single home, dual occupancy or a duplex. Building a Ferntree Homes duplex can be a great way to capitalise on a large block of land. Some older Sydney homes in established areas are often located on larger blocks as a hundred years ago, properties and space were different from what it is now. With land sand space at a premium in Sydney, a duplex is an option by simply knocking down an older existing home and utilising the whole property by building a duplex that offers two families a home each!

Ferntree Homes can work with Campbelltown Council and your development application as it must meet council standards. Ferntree Homes understands that the opportunity to build two dwellings (a duplex) can significantly improve your home investment to utilise the maximum potential of the block of land creatively. Our experience extends to ensuring the appropriate checks are made to determine if a duplex will meet Council requirements. Again the Ferntree Homes key focus is to provide our customers with the best options to capitalise on a large block.

If you are a first home buyer with limited funds or an investor homeowner, the duplex project is an appealing option as it can assist in answering the downsize equation. Here you can remain in the South Western Sydney community you currently reside and have the duplex tick off a few tricky questions. Large blocks of land can also pose a problem to maintain, though if you want to remain on the ground but just reduce the size of the partition you are responsible for, a duplex can also provide this solution. This opportunity to knock down the current home and build a duplex creates an income stream that allows you to remain where you live and be perfect for retirees or empty-nesters.

Retiring With a Low Superannuation? A Duplex Could Be The Answer!

A duplex with multiple dwellings could allow you greater control over your financial future by setting you up with an income stream from the neighbouring duplex on your single land title.

Retirees or empty-nesters have the option where they rent out both duplexes and receive two incomes, or simply live in one while the other is rented out. Air B&B is also an option. Depending on the location, the vacancy could be below. Either way, you’re able to receive an additional income stream providing greater assistance in meeting your low Superannuation balance.
